At the end of the year, we had some special visitors come in and share their expertise with us.
Mrs. Smith led us in a STEM project in which we assembled boxes, and found solutions to pack and ship the boxes in a way that would make them easier to transport and deliver. The tools used to do this were simple, but they made a big difference. The kids learned persistence and the power of adaptability and flexible thinking.
In addition, Quin's former Au Pair from Brazil came in, and taught us about Brazil. Since we had been studying the exploration and colonization of North America, she taught us about the exploration and colonization of Brazil. The kids noticed similarities and differences between the reasons Europeans explored and colonized in these different locations.
It's always fun and exciting to learn from experts.
